Hurricane Electric operates its own global IPv4 and IPv6 network; HE.NET is the largest IPv4 backbone in the world, as well as the largest IPv6 global network (as measured by number of networks connected). Hurricane Electric is also present at the most Internet Exchange Points (IXPs).
Within its global IP Transit network, Hurricane Electric is connected to more than 100 major exchange points, and exchanges traffic directly with more than 4,000 different networks.
Employing a resilient fiber-optic topology, Hurricane Electric has no less than four redundant paths crossing North America, two separate paths between the U.S. and Europe, and rings in Europe and Asia.
Hurricane Electric offers IPv4 and IPv6 transit solutions over the same connection. Connection speeds available include 100GE (100 gigabits/second), 10GE, and gigabit ethernet.
In addition to its vast global network, Hurricane Electric owns and operates two carrier-neutral colocation data centers in Fremont, California.
